Welcome to the Fund it page for my show ‘Confirmation’ which is making its way to Edinburgh Fringe this August!

‘Confirmation’ is a moving and hilarious look at how a vote can change the way we view ourselves and is inspired by my hometown Roscommon’s rejection of Marriage Equality in 2015. Through the form of a pop concert and spoken word I question my relationship with my home, my sexuality and my spirituality, performed to a backdrop of banging beats and sweeping choral arrangements. The catholic coming-of-age ritual ‘Confirmation’ is synonymous to many growing up in Catholic Ireland and signifies a departure into adulthood. As you can see from the images from the show and rewards, it's a theme I am fully embracing!

So far!

‘Confirmation’ premiered at Dublin Fringe Festival in 2018, where it received five star reviews and award nominations. It then went on to Roscommon Arts Centre in Roscommon, back where it all started! The show was made with the support of the Arts Council, Fringe Lab, Roscommon County Council and Creative Ireland. Now with your support the team and I can bring the show to an even bigger audience on an international stage. At the Ed Fringe I will be performing at Pleasance, a leading venue at the festival. The run is ambitious: the whole month! In 2017 my team and I took my show DOUZE to Edinburgh so I’m excited to return!

Getting to Edinburgh Fringe isn't easy. It takes a great team, excellent budgeting skills and serious focus. With your support the team and I can afford to do this right. I can pay people a fair wage, market the show properly, transport myself to Edinburgh and accommodate myself and some of my team. With the success of my various theatre and club shows I have been able to raise a portion of the funds that are going towards the project (aprx €3,000). I am also supported by Roscommon County Council. Your support closes the shortfall and makes the project fully feasible.

Your amazing support will be used towards the cost of...

A portion of the Artist Fees - €1500

Accommodation - €1600

Travel - €200

Online Advertising - €200

Posters & Flyers - €500

Fund-It Charges & Fees €360

How can you help?

Big or small, all pledges are welcome. In return, we’ve put together an amazing selection of rewards! From cute ‘Confirmation’ rosettes to private home concerts, your support will be received with gratitude! Please share this with anyone you think may be able to help us. I'll also make very special shout out videos for every single one of you that donate. You've given the love, so expect some gratitude in return!

Thank you...

Having toured internationally, showcasing award winning experiences for audiences from Prague to The National Theatre of London, I am ready for this big adventure! Thank you for your support this far and thank you for reading!

10% to go!


Thank you to all you amazing supporters - those who joined me at the beginning of this journey and now as we come to a close.

With about a day and a bit to go I am feeling so hopeful that I will reach the target...it's quite a lovely position to be in and I am very thankful.

Once the target is (hopefully) reached I'll be getting in touch with you to organise your rewards. If you opted out of a reward - thank you for that, I appreciate it. 

In the mean time, any last minute shares are welcome - tell the world about your generosity. The fundraising ends on Monday at 12 midday. Woo!


65% - 5 DAYS TO GO!


I am so thrilled to see the target creeping closer and closer to the final amount!

With 5 days to go I really think we can do it, so thank you for your support. 

I'd love if you could continue to share the video or the link to the page to family or friends who might find the project inspiring or interesting.

The fundraiser ends on Monday at 12pm. That's the golden hour. Can we make it? I think we can!

Thank you for sharing and supporting. You're all going to heaven for your good deed. 

In the mean time if you're in London why not come celebrate my 30th Birthday with me so I can thank you for your support directly. To celebrate my Ed Fringe run I'm throwing a massive party full to the brim with London's best cabaret acts. Join me on Thursday at 8pm till late at the Bethnal Green Working Men's Club! More info here (and don't worry, you don't need to pay you've done enough).

We're 50% there!

It's been amazing to see the great response from everyone.

I am feeling hopeful that I may reach the target. I hope!

But in the mean time I would love a favour from all your lovely pledgers. 

I would love if you could share the link or the video on your social medias or even just mention it in conversation. The key to success is continuing to get the word out and I think a reminder will help get the target reached. You might have a friend who's seen one of my shows or relates 'Confirmation' because of its themes. 

Obviously if you don't want to share I appreciat that, you've done so much already. 

Take care, and see you on the other side! 



Thank you to everyone who's supported my fundraiser to get my show 'Confirmation' to Edinburgh Fringe so far! You know who you are! I am amazed by the unreal generous outpouring of support!

So far we've raised €1510 (or 33%) of the total target which is amazing!
It's been really humbling to see such an amazing and supportive response from people, many people whom I've met in passing at shows or throughout my short career. It's really amazing.
If you've supported the project - thank you - I can't wait to send you your prizes (once we reach our target hopefully!).
For the past week I've been working on the show in Dublin Fringe Lab so it's been really great to get back to it. Edinburgh is going to be amazing.
